I hope you all enjoyed Belinda’s inspiring story. Huckleberry Farm is a really natural setting and I love it! Great place to take children but maybe we should have a WI trip there!
So lovely to see so many happy faces last night and great to see Valerie too.
Next week Tuesday11th June 7 of us are going for lunch at Old Weavers House then taking a boat down the river in Canterbury. We are meeting at 12.30. If you fancy joining us it’s not too late.
The trip to Provender House on Tuesday 2nd July at 2.30pm is all paid up, but I can still add names if you are interested. The price is £11 for concessions with £6.50 for tea and cake
Our Annual Garden Party will take place on Thursday July 4th in Janice’s garden. We have a great entertainer and a BBQ. If your name is not on the list can you please let Marcelle know ASAP as we need to cater for the event? Also please note that we have had to rescind our invitation to husbands. Sorry for the confusion! You will need to bring a plate, bowl, cutlery, glass and a drink (plus a garden chair if you have one and are able to carry it).
The Bredgar Group lunch on July 11th at Upchurch Golf Club is all paid for.
There is a Garden Party to celebrate East Kent’s Centenary on Monday July 22nd at St Edmunds School, Canterbury. Please let Marcelle know if you want to attend. There are two sittings and the cost is £15 .I believe that Vena will be demonstrating Tai-Chi at the party. There are details in your WI magazine.
We are visiting Shepherd Neame for a tour and a 2 course meal on Friday 18th October in the evening. The price is £30. Please put your name on the list if you are interested, I have had to change the proposed date.
We are visiting the Great Danes for a Christmas Beatles lunch; the price is £30 for a 3 course meal and entertainment. Could you please pay Dilys when you next see her so we can make a group booking before all the tickets go?
The Art Course is now booked for 8 people on Monday 10th, 17th and 24th June. Don’t forget to bring £15 along on Monday. Should be interesting!
